About Imre Nagy
The former Locksmith and Premier of Hungary Imre Nagy became a martyr when he fought the then government for the liberation of his people after being held prisoner in Siberia during the First World War.
He was born to Jozsef Nagy and Rosalia Szabo.
He was called to the army during the First World War and reported to duty in 1915. After sustaining a leg injury from a bullet shot, he was held captive in a Siberian prison camp where he was introduced to communist ideas. He spent a few years more as a captive of the Czechoslovak Legion.
When he returned to Hungary in 1918, he joined the Hungarian Communist Party and served in the Soviet Republic in 1919. Living in exile throughout the Second World War, he was appointed Agriculture minister in the provisional government in 1945 upon his arrival.
After the death of Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin in 1953, there was a power struggle between him and Matyas Rakosi. Nagy was especially in favor of liberal communism. He was dismissed as leader in 1955 but returned to power as prime minister during the Hungarian Revolution in 1956.
Following the Soviet Union’s invasion of Hungary in November 1956, Nagy was removed from power and sought safety in the Yugoslavian embassy in Budapest. After a carefully orchestrated deceit, the Soviets were able to convince Nagy to exit the embassy, at which point he was captured, secretly tried for treason and put to death on June 16, 1958.
Decades after his execution, he was posthumously honored by Hungary and reburied with full honors in June 1989.
